Happy Sweater Season | Pigment Craft Co

Affiliate links used at no extra cost to you. 

Fall is my favorite season, it's all about pumpkins, sweaters and cozy sweaters.   Today's card features a couple Pigment Craft Co sets.

I used the Tea Cup stamps and coordinating dies with Pigment Craft Co Glow Ink.  The coffee/tea has been colored with Copic E34.

The pumpkins from Pumpkin Patch have been stamped in:

The sentiment is from Sweater Seasons Sentiments with the coordinating die.

You might not be able to tell that the center strip is cork.  I've been on a big cork kick lately.  To help let the sentiment pop, I added a panel of vellum.  I have such a  huge stash of 12x12 + 6x6 paper that I should be using more of.  This particular ombre houndstooth [vintage Pink Paislee] seemed perfect for the design. 

My design was inspired by the current Fusion Card Challenge:

You are Brew-tiful | SugarPea Designs

A big Thank You to my friends at SugarPea Designs for their newest caffeinated collection!   

My card features:

SugarCut - Coffee Cuties
SugarCut - Whole Latte Words
Brewtiful Sentiments

Their sweet faces are over the top cute. The SugarCut sets are packed with different pieces. See how the mug has a piece that shows the interior of the mug? Such a fun way to add a contrasting color.

I used the Coffee Sleeve SugarCut with a Starbucks sleeve, love the added texture it gives the design.

Essentials by Ellen - October Release + Instagram Hop!


Did you hear?  Ellen Hutson LLC has a new release and it has officially hit the shop!  We're celebrating with an instagram hop.  You don't want to miss out on any of the fun, inspiration + prizes.  The fun starts on the EH IG Account.  I have all the hop stops listed at the bottom of this post.  

I did want to share my project here on my blog.  I love how this giftie turned out, let's get started!

I started off with the Essentials by Ellen - Two-In-One Box.  This is a gem.  I've had it in my stash but when I saw Carissa's project for the September Release, I knew I had to use it.

The box has been cut from Concord & 9th - Mushroom cardstock.  I layered a custom trimmed Nordic Cross Cover that has a sentiment from Tag it:  Christmas.  Love the addition of the gold embossing.  The Nordic Cross Cover panel has been backed with Concord & 9th - Cranberry.  The stamps are the newly released Cup of Cheer stamp set + coordinating designer dies.  I love how the Starbucks card slides right in.

Check out what else I designed, coordinating mini cards:

This project is a bit deceiving, it is PACKED with Essentials by Ellen products.  Each card has a stitched top panel, that die came with the Two-In-One Box.  I just cut/scored Concord & 9th mini card bases.

Cup of Cheer:

Hello Hello!

I am thrilled to be on the Pigment Craft Co blog today!  I had so much fun with their holiday release.  I added some of my favorites from earlier releases too, let's get to it!

Here's a peek at both of my projects.  My overall color palette is Glow + Sage:

My first card features:

I snuck in the Eyelet Background Cover Plate.  I backed it with cardstock that is similar in color to Sage.

The sentiment from A Little Gift has been stamped in Sage on a strip of cardstock the same width of the card.

I used the heart shaped die from the Sweater Weather set.  To add more texture to my design, I used cork for the hearts.  I finished off the card with jute twine.

My next card features:

Both the sentiment and the Snow is Falling images have been heat embossed in white.  I love that pop of white on the dark green cardstock.  

This one uses the Cozy Stitches Cover Plate Die and the Sweater Weather set.  The candy cane heart from Got You a Card-Again  has been adhered to the card with foam dimensionals.

I can't wait to design more holiday cards.  I can't believe we're already into Mid-October, where has the time gone?  Thanks so much for stopping by!
